INTRODUCTION AND PROCEDURAL HISTORY

Student (hereinafter “Student”)1 is a 17 year old former student of the Pocono Mountain Charter School (Charter School). Student’s parent filed a due process hearing request while Student was still enrolled in the Charter School, seeking particular services for Student as well as documents and written communication from the Charter School. Because Student’s parent has since withdrawn Student’s enrollment in the Charter School, this matter is dismissed as moot.

ISSUE

Whether Student’s withdrawal from the Charter School renders this matter moot?
